I just posted on my Christmas History & Culture site a little bit about this unknown poem titled "A Soldier's Prayer on Christmas Day." Very poignant and moving, not sure how anyone can read it without tearing up a bit. If you want more of my thoughts on the poem and the War era, you can go to my website at: www.ghostofanidea.com
I also talk about a favorite charity that help soldiers and their families (with a link and information about their Christmas project for this year).
Your Faithful Friend & Servant.
